Low-income Students Seeing Huge Cost Hikes At Some Michigan Universities

Today’s story highlighting the price tag at Michigan’s 15 public universities kicks off a year-long Bridge series on college affordability. In an era in which nearly all young people need some form of post-high school degree or training to secure a decent, family-supporting income, college costs (and debt) are higher than ever.

In 2015, Bridge will chronicle the factors that contribute to this crisis, and explore policy solutions that can help Michigan families. At the same time, our co-workers at the Center for Michigan will be engaging residents on the value of a college degree as part of the Center’s focus on state workforce needs.
